So the boys were gone all week at camp and it was, of course, quieter and more peaceful. Not that there was no fighting going on, but definitely it was decreased. Yet, in only a motherly way, I missed my boys. I was devastated when I didn't get their "on-the-schedule" Wednesday night call home. Luckily they called on Thursday morning and talked and talked and talked and I hardly knew what they were talking about. But they were having fun (I'll post their camp next, I hope!).
Anyways, Ben had already put in about 40 hours of work by Thursday and there were no surgeries on Friday, so he got the day off. We haven't done much hiking so that was our (our = Ben and Emily, not the girls) choice of activity for the day. I had seen another friend post some cool pictures from a hike and so we decided to explore that area. It was cool - literally and figuratively! Ben and I forgot to bring jackets . . . and it was cold and rainy. But not for all of it. It did warm up as we got close to the truck. :)
Anyways, here are some pictures:
But by that time, it was chilly and so we headed down. We spent a little bit of time in Ouray and then headed home. It was a good day!
